    You know, being friends with two cute boys does have its benefits. There's Danny. Danny is a golden boy in every way. He has dreamy blue eyes and blonde hair that always looks perfect, even when it's windblown or been stuck under a football helmet. He's the boy every girl crushes on. The boy I get into trouble with, the boy I fight with, the hot quarterback no girl can resist, not even me. Being with Danny is like being on an adventure. He has a bright, contagious smile and abs to die for. He's pretty much irresistible.

    Story

    This book was so much better than I thought it would be. It was super adorable, with a protagonist you could root for, and two cute boys to keep us guessing. It was light without being overly cute. It was a romance with an actual plot. And about midway through, it gets REAL. And that was done really well too. I have no complaints! As for the performance, I thought that the narrator did a phenomenal job. Rarely do I think the narrator actually enhances the book, but in this case she did.

    Holden Worthington's globetrotting days are over. Once the host of a popular adventure show, he hasn't ventured past his own front door in more than a year. Then the arrival of a sexy new gardener sparks something Holden hasn't felt in a very long time - an interest in the world outside his window. Holden tries to resist the attraction. But painfully shy yet definitely interested Adam Morgan has Holden longing to conquer his debilitating anxiety and live again. After a grisly discovery on the grounds of the estate, the town of Smithfield turns a suspicious eye on the reclusive Holden - and the two men must trust in each other to bring the truth out in the open.

    What did you like best about Men of Smithfield: Adam and Holden? What did you like least?

    I like L.B. Gregg. I think her stories are funny and clever and sweet, but also have some good steamy scenes. The worst part about this BY FAR was the narrator. I've hard him narrate Gregg's other stories, so it's not that he can't narrate, but the choice that he made for Holden had me cringing the entire time! As others have said, it was very Paul Lynde-esque. Which is horribly unsexy. And Holden is fit and strong and hot!!!! It absolutely took away from an otherwise entertaining story.


    What didn’t you like about Shannon Gunn’s performance?

    As I said above, his choice of voice for Holden was the absolute worst choice I've ever heard from a narrator. If I didn't like Gregg so much, I wouldn't have made it through the book. Absolutely awful. It needs to be redone.

    Quinn Donahue will do anyone once, so when Aaron Miller spots Quinn making his moves in a Vancouver gay bar, Aaron thinks he's found just the guy to relieve him of his unwanted virginity. Quinn, however, has apparently decided to make an exception to his usual open-bed policy. He may be an unrepentant connoisseur of one-night stands, but he's not going to disappoint a sweet kid like Aaron by giving him a hot night and then leaving while the sheets are still warm.

    If you could sum up Shying Away in three words, what would they be?

    Sweet love story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This book was full of great characters. I'd have to go with Aaron's brother, who was supportive and awesome.


    What does Robert Nieman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Robert Nieman is one of the best narrators I've come across on Audible, without a doubt the best m/m narrator. He has a voice you want to listen to forever, but he also knows how to read a book. I would purchase any book he read, regardless of what it was, because I thought he was so talented.

    He's everything I've never wanted—too young, too weird, too wild. I wasn't impressed that I had to get my weekly massage from a guy with a toe ring. But when I discovered David Cooke's skills as a masseur were literally orgasmic, I couldn't stop thinking about him and his amazing hands, day and night. Especially at night. He's full of surprises. And despite my bad behavior, David's just as eager to explore this chemistry between us. Turns out, there's a lot more to him than hemp pants and tattoos.

    What made the experience of listening to Men of Smithfield: Seth and David the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoy the narrator of the Men of Smithfield books. The voice of Quinn was a bit over-the top, but I thought Seth was perfection. It definitely added to my enjoyment of these books.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    David. Some characters in these types of books can be fairly one-dimensional, but Seth was responsible and nurturing, yet wild and a risktaker at the same time. I liked this dichotomy.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Maybe the scene in the alley. The sex scenes in this book are aggressive and hot. The scene in the alley set the tone of the book. Yet the book could also be really funny and sweet as well.

    No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal. But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible....

    It's rarely that I listen to a book and feel like I am so much better off than if I would've just read it. In this case, the narrator of Pushing the Limits took it from an entertaining YA read to a quite emotional experience. There were parts when I actually cried, and it was all due to the narrator's touching delivery. The story was good. It's not light and fluffy, but it's definitely worth reading.

    "Coming home from work to find my boyfriend banging our hairy, married landlord—in our bed—was bad enough. Discovering Jamie had also cleaned out my bank accounts made it officially the worst day of my life. I think I can be forgiven for wanting revenge, even if a few little laws (and possibly Jamie's nose) got bent in the process."

    This was a new to me author, so I had low to no expectations going into this, since it was such a bargain! This book made me a fan. It's short and fun. I thought the narrator was great. I loved his Italian cop, Tony, and he perfectly captured the loveble but maddening nature of Mark. I definitely recommend it if you're looking for a good m/m romance.

    An erotic gay romance, a suspenseful thriller.... A series of murders in New York City has stymied the police and FBI alike, and they suspect the culprit is a single killer sending an indecipherable message. But when the two federal agents assigned to the investigation are taken out, the FBI takes a more personal interest in the case. Special Agent Ty Grady is pulled out of undercover work. He's cocky, abrasive, and indisputably the best at what he does.

    This story will definitely keep your attention. Ty and Zane are great characters with explosive energy. The mystery was a bit predictable, but the development of the relationship between the two main characters more than made up for it. The narrator was good. I cringed whenever he had to do a woman's voice, but luckily, that wasn't very often. I would definitely purchase the next books in the series.

    In the story comic book legend Stan Lee calls "spellbinding" and "totally original," Thom Creed has secrets. For one, like his father, he has super powers. Also, he's been asked to join the League—the very organization of superheroes that spurned his dad. Then there’s the secret Thom can barely face himself: he's gay. But becoming a member of the League opens up a new world to Thom. There, he connects with a misfit group of aspiring heroes, including Scarlett, Typhoid Larry, and Ruth, a wise old broad who can see the future. Like Thom, these heroes have things to hide....

    I loved this book. I'm not particularly a fan of the superhero genre, but this book was exciting, accessible, charming, and amazingly well written. I especially loved the world that Perry Moore created, and it was only enhanced by gay teen superhero wannabe Thom. The characters were likeable and well-developed, and the plot had enough action to keep you reading/listening, but didn't overpower a strong plot, which is ultimately a touching story of a boy trying to accept himself -- his sexuality, his superpowers, etc. Add to that a simply phenomenal narration by Michael Urie. I wish he could narrate my life. He is an excellent reader, but also has great voices that add so much to the story. I especially loved Jack Nicholson-esque Golden Boy. And all of the stereotypical superhero voices. This book was funny, exciting, and full of heart. I can't recommend it enough.

    Jared Thomas has lived his whole life in the small mountain town of Coda, Colorado. He can't imagine living anywhere else. Unfortunately, the only other gay man in town is twice his age and used to be his teacher, so Jared is resigned to spending his life alone... until Matt Richards walks into his life, that is. Matt has just been hired by the Coda Police Department, and he and Jared immediately become friends. Matt claims he is straight, but for Jared, having a sexy friend like Matt is way too tempting.

    Story

    The book itself was not too bad. Nothing exciting that would set it apart from others in the same genre, but a nice story. The narrator, however, was terrible. I don't know why the decision was made to simply read the story, with no differentiation between characters, but it did not work well. Also, the narrator had a strange inflection that lowered at the end of each sentence, which took a sweet book and made it seem kind of depressing. He did not seem to be familiar with the book, since his tone never seemed to match the material he was reading. Add in the intermittent 70s porn music between the chapters and it made a fingernails on the chalkboard type of grating listening experience. I've read other books by Marie Sexton that I enjoyed, but I would never listen to one of them again on Audible.

    Chip Arnold is a well-liked football coach at a small liberal arts college, but his personal life is in a bit of a rut. He goes out drinking with his colleagues, gets along well with his players, and dates all the prettiest women in town - he has the life most straight men dream of. But lately none of the women he dates seem to be igniting any passion in him. Then he meets the new school chaplain, Foster Lewis. Romantic attraction to another man is new and terrifying, and Chip just can't put his finger on why he's drawn to Foster, but it's stronger than anything he's felt for anyone in his life.

    Story

    Eric Arvin is a romantic. Contrary to the photo on the cover, this book isn't just about sex. It is relatively tame in that regard. It is about two different couples, one in mid-life, the other in college, who find love. It's charming in it's simplicity, and is deeply touching at times. This is not a great literary masterpiece, but it's perfect for a road trip or for listening around the house while you get your chores done. It's short, it's sweet, and I liked it a lot.
